Fuencaliente (Hot Fountain) is the best tourist base in the south of the island and offers a mix of marine and volcanic attractions. The area gets its name from hot springs that were once believed to treat leprosy, but were buried by a fiery volcano in the 17th century. Don’t think that the volcanoes have gone all sleepy and tame since then, though – the last eruption was in 1971, when Volcán Teneguía’s lava flow added a few hectares to the island’s size.
